Good morning and welcome to Day 2 of our annual "12 days of holiday giving!" For these twelve days we have partnered with our design team and our sponsors to celebrate YOU! Yes YOU! If you didn't join us for our Day 1 kick off, be sure to start here!
Today design team member Marla Kress joins us and as always, puts a little magic into her gift wrapping! She is a brilliant one!
"Happy Holidays SCT readers! Today I’m here to keep the creativity going when it comes to gift giving. I know wrapping gifts isn’t the most exciting task. But if you look at a gift like a scrapbooking layout or card, it can be fun. I know there are lots of patterns and colors available in the giftwrap department but more often than not I look for the neutrals, in this case white and brown.
Think of it like decorating, use a neutral base and accessorize! As a scrapbooker, you probably have more than enough extras lying around.
Take this package for instance:
With a simple brown base I was able to add a strip of American Crafts patterned paper, some Maya Road snowflakes, twine, brads and a gift tag. All extras that I had lying around!
For this package I went with a photo. It doesn’t have to be a person – landscape would look great too with a handwritten note. I wanted it to feel organic so I used twine, a button and die cut leaves from Spellbinders. Clean and simple.
On this last package I used a white base so that my washi tape would show. I added twine and a chalkboard star from BasicGrey and it took less than five minutes!
I hope you’re inspired to dress up a package or two this season with the extra supplies you have lying around. If you do, please post a link in the comments so that we can be inspired by you too!" ~ Marla Kress
